Journal on the Art of Record Production – Relaunch‏

We are pleased to announce the relaunch of the Journal on the Art of Record Production website and issue 5 of JARP.  Aptly, the editorial, Change and Continuity: Transformations, Innovations and Tensions in the Art of Record Production, has been written by ARP 2010 conference hosts Robert Davis and Justin Morey of Leeds Metropolitan University.

Since announcing the formation of the new editorial board we have been busy designing the new website and, most importantly, devising and implementing new guidelines and procedures. These can be found in the ‘contribute’ section of the website and we would urge all members to familiarise themselves fully with them, as they will be strictly applied.

Issues 1 through 4 have been migrated over from the ARP website and indexed as follows:
Editorial (including industry perspectives and provocations)
Conference Papers

In Issue 5, we introduced a new Media Review section, which aims to provide readers with informed assessment of books, periodicals and instructional/ informational media such as CDs and DVDs, as well as online media resources. Additionally, we invite ASARP members who have produced such media to submit them for consideration for review.

Please contact Eddie Ashworth ( for more information.

Also to be found on the website is our new ‘about’ page which outlines our aims and objectives going forward which are:

  • to publish a first-class international online peer-reviewed journal;
  • to promote the interdisciplinary study of record production (term ‘record production’ is to be interpreted in the broadest sense as the production of recorded music); and
  • to continue to grow our international reputation and readership.

A Call for Articles will be announced shortly. In the meantime, we would like to take this opportunity to thank: our authors, conference hosts, guest editors, peer-reviewers, practitioners and industry supporters for their collective contribution and commitment over the years, without  which, our vibrant diverse research community would not exist as it does today.

Please do visit the site and let us know what you think by emailing:
